Telegraph – Anne Jepson…



This former mining stronghold – the remains of which, The Scottish Mining Museum, is five minutes away – is an unlikely setting for a boutique hotel and restaurant.

I knew this as a quirky and somewhat dull pub that did food. What a transformation. It has been refurbished mainly as a casual place to eat; intimate, personal and deserving of the “boutique” tag.

None are generous, and the suite is really only a room with a corridor and dressing room. Its deep copper bath really is special, however, and extraordinarily comfortable for two to sit in for hours. Fine mattresses and bed linen make for a great night’s sleep. The rooms at the front could suffer from traffic noise. Striking modern décor, with lots of warm, solid oak.

We stayed on a Tuesday and the restaurant/bistro was full and buzzing. Breakfasts are generous and the lunch and dinner menus are varied and imaginative; Scottish produce is promoted minus the tartanry. Everything was beautifully cooked and presented and the service was perfect.

The fact there was no need to head into Edinburgh for a good meal, which would have been the case previously in this locale; very comfortable covered outside bar, again a rarity in this part of the world.

The décor of some rooms, given their size, is a bit heavy going, making them feel a little cramped. There were some teething problems with the plumbing.

We were guests for three nights in February, 2012. Wonderful accommodations, very helpful staff, and incredible food. Thank you!

I dined at the Sun Inn on Saturday 28th April along with a party of eleven to celebrate the birthday of one of my friends. I have to say that the dining experience was one of the finest I have ever had – the food was excellent and well presented, the staff, all young kids, were very friendly and extremely professional, the entire ambience of the restaurant was just great.

I have eaten in the Sun Inn on many occasions and it is always fabulous, however lunch today was the best yet. Beautifully presented, very fresh fantasic food!

food is really good, it has to be the best food ive had in years! staff were excellent, I recomend to my friends and family they love it 2.

Found The Sun Inn by chance while staying at the nearby campsite. Tried the “early bird” menu and found it excellent: tasty, beautifully presented and good value food ( and the service was great too!!). We’ll certainly be back.

Our first visit was lunch on Saturday 7 July 2012. It certainly wont be the last either!!
Really shows some of Edinburgh’s more upmarket eating establishments how to do it (at a much fairer and more affordable price too!)

We have been many times for Dinner to the Sun Inn since we discovered it in March and every time has been wonderful. Recently went for lunch there and cannot fault it. The staff are warm and friendly. The service is excellent and the food is fantastic and very well presented.

I have eaten hear many times and never been dissapointed. Food is excellent. Give it a try you won’t regret it.

We had a family meal yesterday with 17 in our company. All meals were delicious enjoyed by one and all. Service was impeccable only one problem I live too far away to eat here more often ! !
